A fresh new look railway station and Bus Terminus, at the heart of Rhyl’s Promenade, awaits your arrival. Manchester and Liverpool Airports are both only a short distance away whilst the super ferries from Ireland connect with Holyhead with direct rail links to the resorts.

The A55 North Wales Expressway runs from Cheshire to Holyhead, with direct links to the M56 – M6 motorway network. Rhyl is under 5 miles from the A55.

6-miles of beautiful, clean beaches join the two resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn.

What we’re looking for

Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist, we are searching for someone who shares our store’s ethos. Someone who wants to grow, develop and offer exceptional customer care along the way. We want a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, that isn’t afraid of a hands-on approach and who is keen to get involved and build rapport with the rest of the team. In summary, we’re looking for a skilled resident Optometrist to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.
